The Rolling Cables Pillow is knit in one flat piece and features stockinette and double rib stitches on one side and an offset cable pattern on the other. Three large buttons keep the pillow cover closed. This pattern uses less than 3 skeins of Thick & Quick yarn and covers an 18 in x 18 in pillow insert. Although you could use virtually any super bulky weight yarn to make the pillow, I recommend Lion Brand's Thick & Quick yarn because it can take a beating and is machine washable.

Over the last two years I have branched into designing knitwear, and am published in both print and online publications. I love spending my days with my husband and kids. In my very rare spare time, I try to squeeze in any quantity of knitting. I also enjoy gardening, baking, reading and sewing in addition to watching way too much Masterpiece Mystery and old movies.
